I think this source might have one less tape gen before the transfer. I haven't done a direct comparison though.

edit, tape might be the same generation, but it appears to be an upgrade

more edits, just did a comparison on Scarlet, definitely an upgrade!

Thanks for catching that, from the notes it looks like this transfer is an upgrade that was done from the original master. I hadn't noticed there were two different CM transfers available. I really love this recording and performance, it is up there with the Jerry Moore 74 auds for me.

Thanks for another great write up. 74 is a year that has much I haven’t heard before, and appreciate the attention that it has been given of late.

There is something I notice at times when clicking on links that has had me wondering, and this is as good of place as any to inquire, seeing as you and elbow set up the perfect examples to demonstrate my point.

Why do some links (such as elbows) open a new (second) browser page, while other times (as with your link to the same show) just redirect to the linked page? This happens with other types of attachments and links too, like in all of Monte’s posts. Myself, I prefer to have a new page open up so I can refer back to the original post without closing the linked page.

For example, when I click on your link to listen to the show, I lose the page with your post, which I would like to read as I listen. Obviously I can work around that easy enough, but I thought I would put this question out there. Sorry for my wordiness, and believe me when I say I mean no offense by any of this. Just curious.

I'm pretty sure the difference is that I'm just using the most basic html link tag, I'm not adding a target=_blank into it. I always use the right-click context menu in Firefox to choose to open links in a new tab or window if I prefer that.
